My Predictions for the Oscars

So I know the Oscars are coming on tomorrow on Sunday March 7, 2010 and most of the time I don’t miss them. I love to watch the glitz and glamour of the whole thing. I like to see who is wearing what or what is wearing who, whichever you want to look at it. But at any rate I can pretty much always guess who is going to win, who is going to win even if they shouldn’t, and who is not going to win at all. Most of the time I am right but this year they have added more movies to best picture, making it a little more difficult for me, but nonetheless I am still going to predict a couple of categories here.

Now the only categories that I really care about are Best Picture, Best Actress and Best Director. Everything else is pretty much boring and like they say being second best (as in supporting roles) just means you get to lose first, or something like that, and I say this because to me supporting actress or actor is kind of a rip off because sometimes they do a better job then the best actress, which is unfair to me, but what can you do, so therefore to me they are a bore and the thing I hate about the Oscars is that it drags on forever before getting to those categories that everyone no doubt is waiting for.

So first let me give you the categories of pictures that are nominated:

Best Picture

Avatar (of course but I didn’t particularly like it)

The Blind Side (I absolutely loved it)

District 9 (Don’t know how this even got in here it was a piece of trash IMHO)Yes I did see it!

An Education

The Hurt Locker

Inglorious Bastards (Not a fan of Tarantino, I’m a girl)

Precious (Amazing Movie)

A Serious Man

Up

Up in the Air

Best Actress

Sandra Bullock

Helen Merrin

Meryl Streep

Carey Mulligen

Gabourey Sidibe

Best Director

James Cameron (Avatar)

Quentin Tarantino (UGHH, Inglorious Bastards)

Katherin Bigelow (The Hurt Locker)

Jason Reitman (Up in the Air)

Lee Daniels (Precious)

The Winners Are: IMHO

1. The Blind Side For Best Picture

2.  Sandra Bullock for Best Actress:

Although I love love love Meryl Streep I know that either Sandra Bullock will get this as usually the best picture and best actress goes together, although Gabourey Sidibe did such an amazing job in Precious that this movie and actress maybe the dark horse in these awards

3. Best Director James Cameron

I say James Cameron because even though I do not think that Avatar even comes close to the story lines in The Blind Side and Precious, I still think that he will get the award. because of who he is and because of the special effects in the movie (which really didn’t impress me that much, I so couldn’t wait for a bathroom break) and so I conclude that James Cameron will probably come out as "King of the world again", for best director and only best director. Now I may be wrong on this since I am not a psychic and I am only giving my humble opinion but those are my predictions and we will see how it goes.

So once again.

1. The Blind Side (Best Picture)

2. Sandra Bullock (Best Actress)

3. James Cameron (Best Director)

Meryl Streep is still going to be hard to beat as she is one of the best. I think I want to be either her or Bette Davis in my next life.

ladyjane1, I don't get movies out here and the last movie I went too was probably in '94 or earlier. I remember the Oscars and seems to me they were a rip off. I remember stuff like "On Golden Pond" an actress (Hepburn?) and an actor (Fonda) in a really good movie that would have been better if they cut the cursing from the script. None the less we had nominations for a great actress and actor who were so old that it was their last film, where was the graciousness for these two who entertained us for 50 years and up to the plate for the last time and were ignored. Now that I think about that it torqued my shorts in a wad.

The Best Actor beyond a shadow of a doubt should go to Barrak Hussein Obama, he has been acting like a regular stinking liar of a president when he really is a radical Muslim Terrorist. LOLOLOL just my $.02 less change.

Ahh Caliber I know exactly what you mean about the oscars. I guess that is why they give the lifetime achievement award to old actors as their last hurrah if they make it that long. I felt that Joaquin Phoenix got robbed when he didnt recieve the oscar for his portrayal of Johnny Cash in Walk the Line but sometimes the academy are biased in some way and very political. As always nice to see you, thanks for reading.

What a GREAT hub...Ladyjane! Thoroughly enjoyed it despite me not being that interested in the Oscars. My favorite part of your hub...hmmm hard to say as it was quite entertaining, but I think the winning line is, " I like to see who is wearing what or what is wearing who, whichever you want to look at it." Brilliantly put...

Now I am going to have to compare your predictions with Stevennix2001!!!

Thanks for posting this!!!!!!

Ann thanks that is my favorite line as well ha ha. Well I didn't do too bad I chose Sandra Bullock for sure and she did win and I was glad Avatar really didnt win and I was also glad that Jeff Bridges won because he deserved it from way back. He is a great actor. Thanks for your nice comments

Well, ladyjane, one out of three isn't bad.

Sandra Bullock won and was great in Blind Side but Hurt Locker won and it was a very dramatic, well-acted film about a squad of U.S. soldiers whose only duty was to defuse hidden Iraqi bombs.

The director, a woman who once was married to John Cameron, the director of Avatar, won for Hurt Locker. Isn't that ironic?

drbj yea I was pretty sure about Sandra Bullock but I really thought Precious was gonna come from behind and sweep it all. I was surprised about hurt locker. And I was kinda shocked that Cameron didn't win. Oh well all in all it was alright I am soo glad that Jeff Bridges won because he is great from way back, thanks for reading.
